Linzer Sables

IMG_0773

In the words of my boss, “These cookies are freaking good!” I may not get that kind of praise for my daily work, but at least he can appreciate my baking.

I have always adored the look of Linzer cookies. The perfect little cutout design, the colorful jam filling and you just can’t go wrong with powdered sugar. They always look so perfect. (I am beginning to notice an interesting trend in that I often seem to concern myself more with the looks of a cookie, rather than other aspects, such as the taste.)

I included these cute little cookies in the holiday treats that I gave out to all of my coworkers, and they were really well received. Not that I was surprised by that. Who doesn’t LOVE cookies. But I did get a few requests for the recipe which always gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling inside. Hell, I must have done something right if they want to make these cookies for themselves.

Yay. I love having excuses to make sweet things.
